Whether it’s anxiety, depression, not living up to potential, or a traumatic experience interrupting your natural life flow, can be paralyzing and causes you to push pause on what matters the most…You!

"The best way to predict the future is to create it." That statement is at the heart of therapy. So often we are defined by what has happened to us and we get stuck living in a space filled with regret, heartache and frustration. You don't have to live in that space and the act of searching for a therapist is a wonderfully bold and courageous start toward creating your future. My role as your therapist will be to help unlock your innate ability to heal, forgive, grow and prosper in the life you wish to create.

Navigating life’s inherit difficulties can be challenging. Sometimes therapy can help. From confronting issues such as loss, anxiety, despair, and interpersonal problems, to facing significant life decisions or struggling with work related stress or substance use, many factors can prevent any of us from engaging in our lives more fully. Whether you are new to therapy or you're returning to work through a new or lingering issue, creating a safe place to explore, understand, and respond to your concerns is crucial. Utilizing warmth and transparency, I hope to cultivate a trusting partnership with you.

Our private practice is unlike most others. I am a pre-licensed clinical fellow at The Briggs Institute,Inc. Therapists at the Institute are graduates of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Lipscomb University, which holds its graduates to a much higher standard of clinical experience than the state requires, one that's far greater than other high quality masters programs in Nashville. Because we practice under the supervision of core Lipscomb faculty, we remain connected to academia. This means our work is informed by state-of-the-art scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

Many people come into therapy not knowing why they feel depressed, anxious, frustrated, or “stuck” in life. Others reach out because they are overwhelmed and unsure how to feel better. Through a safe and supportive therapy relationship, I help clients understand more about themselves and how to live a more meaningful life. As your therapist, I will give you space to talk through your concerns and adapt my style to best meet your needs. I will pay special attention to your experiences, beliefs, values, family background, and cultural identity to make sure that therapy is beneficial and respectful to you as a person.

Understanding that for most, making the decision to enter therapy is a difficult step, it is essential that I not only connect and relate, but I provide a degree of noticeable relief or insight within the first session. This is especially true with adolescents, young adults and men, who tend to be resistant at the onset of the therapy process. I meet my clients where they are at, build upon their strengths to address their struggles, establish mutually agreed upon goals, and become an advocate for their overall growth and well-being. I am affirming, but direct in my approach.

Life is tragic. No one get's out clean. We use things like alcohol, drugs, sex, control, codependency, work, serial relationships, and many other coping skills to try and make it through our pain. Maybe you feel stuck or lost or unable to take another step and so you numb out or check out or run or hide or fight and attack. Whatever you are doing that isn't working, the truth is there is another way. There is a way to be comfortable in your own skin. There is a way to have stable relationships. There is a way to have hope. While there is breath, there is hope.

Together we will find the right path, and right set of practical tools, to help you overcome obstacles and become your best self. After over a decade-and-a-half working in mental health, I am skilled in the latest, evidence-based therapies available (e.g., Relational Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). But no single approach works for all people at all times and, remaining flexible, we will create a safe therapeutic environment with the best combination of techniques that works for you. So many different psychotherapies exist today because there is no one approach that works at all times.

Perhaps you want to be able to express your needs, communicate in new ways, or set boundaries for your well-being.
